My pairs to make Cinnabars have failed again. So 5 attempts, and 5 fails.

This is absolutely rotten. I think their failure rate is far too high unless you're hatching, growing, and breeding like mad (I'm going at a fairly decent pace even, in my opinion, just not at as high of a pace as a handful of others who are getting the Cinnabars). :t-cry:

That's some serious bad luck! Rosehill's stated that the highest failure rate is 50% for this contest, so it seems like you had the worst kind of streak. (There's a 3% chance of all 5 of your attempts failing!) Don't give up, though - maybe your next 5 will all succeed to make up for your terrible luck!

As far as cooldown potions go, I think it's great that they were disabled for this contest. Everyone is subject to the same whims of RNGsus as a result. Again, to me, there's a huge difference between starting with the max number of items that will let you set up a breeding and hope it works, and starting with max items that let you brute force a breeding until it works.

Also def agree that some of the egg hatching methods are maybe a bit...fishy! I'm definitely going to side-eye you if your fish all miraculously get exactly the number of anonymous clicks needed to hatch them in like 5 minutes. Twitter bots are good, but generally not 3 rows of anonymous clicks good.

I only have 2 pairs (the 5 failures was total breeding attempts over the entirety of the contest), and I don't think I'll have another before the end of the contest, so I actually will only have 2 more attempts on Tuesday for the contest (and I kind of want to wait to breed them until Wednesday because I seriously don't need more failures pissing me off on my birthday :omg: ).

My anti-record is 8 failed attempts in row. Fortunately, I have pretty decent rate now.

That's a mood. Yeah, I'm fine with ya'll tweeting stuff, sure, 7 extra anon clicks, your egg is halfway hatched, that's cool, fine. But when I stalk the clicking thread and a new variant I've not yet seen has grown into an adult without me ever even seeing the egg that's a big eyebrow raise right there - or when I see like 20+ Anonymous on a critter

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm at 663 points, but I got 5 Ulysses growing so I won't get dat memeable 666 (but I could get 669 hehe nice
Reached 25 Sunsets finally, but I've failed so many breedings today there was literally a point where I had nothing higher than Swallowtail to breed and that was pretty maddening. I swear, the Tree Nymps are the worst in every category. They are a mean one Mr. Grinch
Mmmmmmmmmm like just now. 3 attempts at Sunsets, but because Nymph is a part of the breeding concoction all 3 failed, of course. (+1 Birdwing & Ulysses fail, Ulysses Swallowtail gave me an egg though but gosh that's not the critter I need more of at the moment)
Tree Nymph? More like, Thee Numb

to be fair in terms of hatching with anon clicks, i can easily get a row and a half with the link shorteners and getting people to click on them in Discord, which tend to hatch the eggs pretty quickly (along with a quick 3-4 posts in egg click threads). however, i am seeing people with over 4 rows of anon clicks and sometimes i'm getting extra anon clicks on my own creatures which i'm not sure where they are coming from

This doesn't make me feel better. It just means my attempt 6 and 7 in three days will fail and no Cinnabars for me during the contest. T_T

You're hatching like crazy, so thankfully you've had more chances!

Us middle-of-the-road hatchers (and lower) have it rough when the RNG gods doom us. :t-bipolar:

It took me most of the competition to get a pair of Cinnabars and the little jerks give me an egg on the first try. RNG is laughing at me I swear :P

:t-blush:
I've been focusing mostly on the personal goals and it's helped me garner quite a few points the past couple of days. I admittedly have way too much time on my hands.
